The Enthusiasm Project

Description
In 1869, Welsh industrialist John Hughes founded the mining town of Donetsk in Eastern Ukraine, initiating a wave of migration from South Wales to Eastern Europe. But 1917 and the approaching Russian Revolution saw the hasty exit of the industrialists who had followed Hughes, fearful of the revolutionary ferment. A hundred years later, in the present day, Ukraine and the Donbas are once again at the centre of a violent conflict that has led to the internal displacement of over a million people. Project leaders Dr Victoria Donovan, from the University's Department of Russian, and Stefhan Caddick will be joined by composer Simon Gore to present 'Enthusiasm' via music, image and discussion.
